Bear With Me

I saw this the other day, and figured it was probably more important than identity politics.

Hey, it’s four in the morning and I can’t sleep, so here are some links! I’m currently reading “Debt: The First 5000 Years” by David Graeber, and it’s gone from highly interesting to immensely frustrating. This review over at The Charnel-House is the best I’ve found so far, though I could probably add a lot […]

Games, cats and communism. What else could you expect from this blog? Ossuary is a new commercial game by Gregory Avery-Weir, creator of Looming and indie classic The Majesty of Colors. I wonder, do game critics nowadays even remember how big games like The Majesty of Colors were? Do they remember how for a while, […]

Hi. I haven’t been updating much lately, mainly due to a) working really hard b) the continuing saga of Health Problems. I have some, Verena has some, and the cat has some too. It’s the kitty that’s really worrying us at the moment, since it’s barely been a month since her surgery and she has […]

Authentic Pronunciation

I’m working on making lots of games for you people, which is why I don’t have enough time to write something interesting. So here’s a video of David Mitchell talking about linguistic authenticity and what happens when you scrutinize language too much.

Time for more links. Oneiropolis Compendium: The Moddhey Dhoo. I’m kind of sad the Compendium can’t get more attention; I think it’s some of the best writing I’ve ever done. I don’t think there’s a lot like it on the internet. Anyway, here’s a new entry. Scientists As Heroes: Greg Egan’s Teranesia. We’ve been a […]

How are you?

So, my dental surgery didn’t go so well. I have a giant gaping wound in my mouth, a tooth with a hole in it that should have been fixed, no way of eating, trouble closing my mouth properly, and a surplus of anger, disappointment and despair. But what about you? Seriously, what about you? I […]

Verenaday!

Today is Verena’s birthday, so I won’t be online much. Instead we will have some nice food and go to the zoo (even though it’s raining) and then to the cinema. It will be a wonderful day, rain or no rain. Yes. We will make it so, as Jean-Luc might say. You know what would […]

This is one of those posts with lots of links in them. I should do them more regularly, because I have interesting stuff to link to and not always enough time to write long, rambling philosophical posts about shrubbery. So, here we go. Linkies! The Indie Royale Lunar Bundle. Yes, it’s awesome that The Sea […]
